Review by Suze
 
Declan always felt like he had something to prove. He wanted to be exactly like his athletic and smart brothers and worked extra hard to make something of himself. He's now a successful business owner. Even though he's well off financially he doesn't have much of a life. He hasn't got any close friends, there's no love and there's no fun, the only thing he does is work. Because his brothers need him he has to return to the family vineyard and to keep working while he's there he takes his assistant Brooke, a woman who's very good at what she does, with him. Declan recently discovered that he isn't just happy with her because she's a capable assistant, he also finds her very attractive and being in her presence brightens his days. Will spending even more time together finally bring him what's missing in his life?
 
After a difficult childhood Brooke is doing everything she can to make her life fun. She wants to live and she has a bucket list to make sure she does everything she's always wanted to do. She fell in love with her boss Declan when she started working for him four years before. He keeps their relationship professional, but maybe their trip to his family's estate will bring them closer together. Will they have a chance or is Declan's businesslike attitude something he can never switch off?
 
Brooke has a sunny personality. She's positive, organized and cheerful and she knows what she wants. A road trip with Declan is an adventure for her and she makes sure she teaches him how to live a little too. That's something I loved about Perfect for You. Brooke's amazing attitude and bubbly presence put a big smile on my face. She makes Declan come out of his shell and I liked that a lot. He's serious and he always wants to prove himself, but with Brooke he discovers a whole different side of his personality. They're perfect for each other and I enjoyed reading their wonderful love story.
 
Perfect for You has a nice fast pace. I flew through the pages and couldn't wait to find out more about Declan and his family. There are secrets he and his siblings need to uncover and Candis Terry slowly reveals some of them. I can't wait to read the rest of the series to discover more. Declan is from a large family and his siblings are all equally interesting. I love the idea of such a lively big household and think it's a fantastic basis for a series. Perfect for You is a lovely sweet romantic read.
 
Advice
 
If you like romantic books about large families the Sunshine Creek Vineyard series is a great choice. The stories can both be read in their correct order as part of a series and as standalones.
 

The sunlight caught like spun gold in the wavy strands of her hair. He liked that her face was makeup free, but mostly he liked that she didn’t need a mask to feel confident. Not that he ever planned to date Brooke, but he’d dated a lot of women who’d refused to leave the house until their makeup had been perfectly applied and every hair was in place.

In his mind, all that preparation took away an opportunity for spontaneity. With his busy schedule, sometimes that’s all he could manage—a last minute invite. Brooke had so much sexy going on she didn’t need all that stuff. And today she’d pretty much proved that she was game for the whole spur-of-the-moment thing. Impressive.

“How many business lunches and dinners have I sat through with you, Mr. Kincade?”

He shrugged. “Too many to count.”

“Bingo.” She pointed. “And do you know what you order almost each and every time?”

“No.”

“Seared ahi.”

“And the problem with that is?”

“Boring.”

“I like ahi.”

“Good for you. But why not expand your horizons? Eating the same old same old every day is like having missionary sex every time the mood strikes.”

And why did she need to bring that up? Because his imagination definitely didn’t need a push in that direction.

“Shake things up.” She waved her hands upward like she was about to take flight. “Be daring. Live a little.”

Damn she was animated. How the hell did someone get like that?

“I’m happy with things the way they are.”

“Are you really?” As she leaned into the table, the unyielding fabric of that tight white tank top across her breasts dominated his attention.

He didn’t respond.

Couldn’t.

He was too . . . distracted.

“You know what they say; all work and no play . . .” she said with a shrug, leaving the remainder of that statement hanging like a noose.

“So you’re saying that eating fish tacos is suddenly going to shake things up in my life?”

“Breaking your same old song and dance routine will. After you’ve opened up the door, anything can happen. Aren’t you the least bit curious?”

The server interrupted them to deliver a large plate of steaming soft tacos, bowls of salsa and sour cream, and two giant froufrou drinks with slices of pineapple and maraschino cherries speared by pink umbrellas.

Oh hell no.

He was not going to drink something that would immediately revoke his man card. But when Brooke plucked the cherry from her glass, dangled it in the air, and captured it with her tongue, he had second thoughts. By the time she settled the bright pink straw between the soft cushion of her lips and sucked the orange frothy drink into her mouth, he figured he’d be game for just about any damn thing. As long as he could watch her do that all day long.
